Tokyo/Taito and Kyoto: short notice/walk in places?

virtual balboa | Sep 20, 201303:10 PM     9

Hi all--

We're going to be in Tokyo (taito area but will travel around, of course) and Kyoto for ten days in early October and I've neglected to plan very well. I'm assuming this puts us out of the running for some of the more destination worthy places but we're not too worried. So:

Does anyone have any recommendations on places we can get to with short notice or no reservations? We'll take almost any price range. Hoping for one really nice meal that will need a res, if that's possible, and the rest ideally are a little more casual--but we're fine spending $60-70 on some of these dinners if you think it's worth it). Food stands and such are great too!

Also if there are any websites you've used in addition to Chow to find food and restaurant info for Japan, that'd be amazing too.

I'm perusing past threads, too. Thanks in advance for any recommendations and guidance!
